#pillsofarboriculture: Managing ornamental trees


Alessandro Savognin, Formazione 3T, faces the theme of urban trees. Urban trees are beneficial, but they do not live in a natural environment. For this reason, they need various kinds of support that the arborist brings into being, such as: ameliorating the characteristics of the soil, using techniques and specific products that impact positively on air circulation and on the root system.


Ezio Rochira, Formazione 3T, presents “video-pills” that shed some light on trees and on the operators who manage them: arborists. Who are they? What do they do? What does it mean to manage trees in an urban context, or to prune and fell trees in tree-climbing? Which emergency measures can be undertaken? What are the extra cares needed while working on trees in an urban context populated by many vehicles? How should an ornamental tree be pruned?
